I value relationships over rules. I was a mormon.
I was raised in the Mormon church and was the perfect Mormon girl, or I tried. I felt that if I stayed Mormon and married a Mormon man that I would be complete. I got married young like most Mormon women and had two children. I didn’t marry for the right reasons and so my marriage was pretty much doomed from the start.

I didn’t want to be LDS anymore and of course, that caused issues in my marriage. I decided to ask for a divorce and my journey of self-discovery started. I have been divorced for almost 10 years. I left the church 2005. I have found that God loves us and wants to have a relationship with us. However, it’s not about RULES but relationship. I have raised my kids to follow Christ. I have realized that we don’t have to be perfect but strive to be true Christians and love and serve others. I have found joy at a non-denominational church where I truly feel has provided a fun and spirit-filled environment.
